Tools & Tips
|This is a fantastic bowl, in fact its called a Un-believ-a-bowl by Vital Baby www.vitalbaby.co.uk. This is great for breakfast, in particular porridge or shreaded wheat cereal soaked in whole milk; the sloppy stuff.|
|We originally bought a very expensive, padded, all bells and whistles high chair but I spent my life pulling food out of all the creases and folds. This chair is from IKEA and is wonderful, and cheap. Easy to clean and perfect while P is learning the basics. Also comes apart very easily and is light enough to take away with you.
Note too the wipe clean matt, saves cleaning the floor everyday
|BLW is messy and at first we were going through loads of wet wipes; expensive and not enviro friendly. In Gill Rapley's book, one of her sources mentions using flannels to clean up. Brilliant idea. I bought 7 cheap ones; one for each day. Used damp to clean hands, face and surfaces then cleaned ready for the next meal. Perfect|
|Already mentioned before but a great book for the theory and basics behind BLW. Thank you Gill Rapley.|
|We're still learning with this, but the Doidy cup is great. P has never used a bottle as he has always been breastfeed. This cup teaches your child to drink from a rim. P loves it as you can see. www.bickiepegs.co.uk|
|The Bumbo baby chair; this was excellent on holiday, before we had bought the IKEA highchair. Easy to clean and comfy for P to sit in (also kept him in one place as he can't get out of it!!). www.bumbobabyseat.com|
